For the last decade she has focused her artistic direction and has rigorously practiced under the mentorship of Shanghai’s meticulous brush painting master Zhang Ruigen, and the promising talent of Ms. Ma Xiaoxing in Nanjing. Both painters are specialists in the Song style of line color painting called Gongbi Hua. Ms. Wang was a participant in the Shanghai Traditional Painting Seminar and the Nanjing Flower and Bird Song Dynasty Style Painting Seminar.
Wang Wen has lived and painted full time in Portland for the last six years.
She fell in love with the charms of the city and the enchanting natural environment. Ms. Wang has been thrilled and inspired by the local wealth of flowers, grasses, trees, birds and more. In the years ahead she intends to bring her artistic focus to bear on the flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest.
